I thought the first one was amazing, and couldn't believe that the second one surpassed it, and now this one!! I loved it, and so did my 14 year old son! We are devoted fans!!!

Another GREAT book
by Sarah - reviewed on October 30, 2008
I borrowed this book from my local library and had it read within a day. Brandon Mull is excellent at writing captivating stories. I can't wait for the next book to come out to find out what happens to Kendra and Seth. Without giving anything away, I can't believe how many twists and turns the plot took in this book. It was a wonderful book to read and something that I'm expecting my son to want to read when he gets a year or two older (he's 7 and this book is a little big for him). I can't wait to get my own copy. WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL!!!
Another great read!

A Sure Winner!

Brandon Mull writes amazingly! The Third book in the Fablehaven series is my favorite so far! The writing style and storyline makes it nearly impossible to set down. The Characters grow and develop, the plot thickens, the stakes get higher and higher. This series is amazing.

Our whole family love the series and cannot wait for the next book. It was exciting and a fantastic read for all ages.
Each book gets better!
by Seth - reviewed on September 13, 2008
Brandon Mull has one of the most fertile imaginations on the planet as he continues to come up with new characters, threats, and fantastic situations I have ever read - and I have read a LOT of fantasy and science fiction. At the same time, the plot never seems contrived, but flows very naturally, and the characters are all detailed and convincing. With each book, he gets better at his storytelling skills, and draws the reader into the narrative completely. He also gently teaches good lessons about responsibility, honesty, and courage. Young and old alike enjoy the series, and we have loved to read them aloud with our family.

This is an amazing book. I absolutely loved it and I can't wait until the next one comes out. Definetly buy this book.
by Melanie - reviewed on September 21, 2008
Brandon Mull has done it again!! This book followed right along with the other two wonderful stories, a smash hit! I love this exciting world of faries and magic that just draws you in! Parts of this book moved a little slow for me, but overall it was another A+! I'm eagerly awaiting book four!
Great family book
by Morgan - reviewed on September 22, 2008
The books keep getting harder to put down. These books are as much fun as Skye's or Rowling's writings, but they are easier to read and enjoy as a family. I (38) enjoyed the books and share reading and discussing them with my nephews (11, 9) and friends (25, 30, 36). We all agree that these books take us into a great world and give us clean adventure and fun. A thorough enjoyment! 5 Stars!

My only disappointment was that the fourth book was not waiting for me after I finished! I can't wait for the next book to come out. I couldn't put it down and read it in a matter of days!
Absolutely LOVE these books!

I love the Fablehaven books. I realize they are written for a younger audience, but I'm 24 & love them! The writing is awesome and it helps you imagine things without any violence or bad content.
Two thumbs up!

Can't wait for the forth book!this one is Magnificent!!!
by Anthony - reviewed on September 17, 2010
Although I enjoyed book three in the Fablehaven series, the book takes on the feel of a filler book in some areas as it continues to lead us to the series finale. However, Brandon Mull does have the ability to make each book it's own and it is quite exciting and full of adventure! I am excited to keep reading!
